Finished stitching.....

I finished February's Calendar Girl a few day's before the 1st of the month :-)

And I also finished Easter Parade by Blackbird Designs :-)

I have an idea of how I want to finish this one but I don't know if it will work out ok yet, if not it will just be framed.  I've got a few weeks to thing about it yet.

I managed to avoid all temptation of starting another stitching project until both of these were done, quite impressed with myself for doing that :-)

Next ones on the list are the Calendar Girl for March, which I'm making a start on this afternoon and Autumn Dream by Cottage Garden Samplings

 Here's my tiny start on this one from yesterday

We have some lovely indoor blooms to brighten these dull days, when is it going to stop raining!!

My Amaryllises is very small this year, the smallest ones I've grown!
It does have two flower buds though, these are the flowers from the first, the second one has yet to flower.  At first I was disappointed that it was so small, but now I quite like it :-)

That's it for me today, I'm off to make a cuppa and do some stitching, it's wet and wild outside so inside is the best place to be today :-)

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

See you soon

Your Amaryllis is beautiful, mine is huge, it's a single colour, dark red, it's beautiful but I think I prefer the mixed colours. Still lovely to have fresh blooms inside.

Jo said...

Your finishes are both lovely. It's so hard to keep on track with projects when there's other things you're itching to start so you did well holding off until they were finished. I love growing bulbs indoors at this time of year, we definitely need something to brighten up the days just now with the storm raging outdoors.

Sandy said...

The blossoms are so pretty and so nice to see this ugly time of the year. Your projects are adorable, and congrats on forcing yourself to finish a few before you start anew. I've recently gotten excited about some finishes, seems it's been awhile. Please swing by and happy stitching.

Your x-stitch pieces are beautiful and so is your amaryllis!!!

Cathy said...

Congratulations on having two finishes and on holding off starting new projects until they were done!

Jane said...

Your calendar girl is gorgeous! I love how you've framed her. It's still very wet and windy here too. We've spent the day watching rugby and snooker whilst doing a little more on my crochet blanket. Best, Jane x

Shelly said...

Your finishes are awesome. I need to be strict with myself and finish things before starting new ones. Your Amarylls is so pretty, those touches of pink do it.

I love Easter Parade SO much!!

Carol said...

Two darling finishes, Maggie! I do love the colors in both so much. And that Autumn Dream chart is, well, dreamy! I bought the entire seasons and that is one of my favorites as well--that pumpkin house is just the cutest! Love your blossoms--such a welcome sight during this time of year :)

Chris said...

Beautiful stitching and love the March one too. i haven't stitched for a few years but have plenty to do! I love amaryllis, mine have flowered and gone, this year I 'm going to try and treat it right so it will flower again next year.

Barb said...

Beautiful flowers. So nice to see this time of year. The February girl is lovely and your new start is so pretty. I don't think I have seen that one.

Lovely stitching, February is a lovely finish. Beautiful bloom

Jackie said...

You did some lovely stitching this month. Kudos to you for not starting another until the first two were completed.

God bless.

Julie said...

Two superb finishes Maggie, Easter Parade is so sweet (but its a bunny so I was bound to say that!)
I like the colour of the amaryllis, mine's really tall with lots of leaves this year, never had to many leaves before.

Tammy said...

Gorgeous work! Easter Parade is so beautiful! I have it and need to do it! Your start on Autumn Dream is so pretty as well. And your finish!!! How cute is that??! Congrats!

Miriam said...

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
